29th treatment today. So far so good.
Until today I believed that there was no door, just a doorway to the treatment room with the IMRT machine. I noticed the door today because it was not completely closed, it slides into the wall, and I realized that it was over a foot thick. They told me it has to be closed all the way before they push the button.
I'm amused that I'm lying there dressed in half a thin cotton gown and they have to be behind walls and doors a foot or more thick.

Worked around banks for many years, and when I saw that door the first day, mumbled something like "ain't never seen one that big" as they were getting me ready. They heard me. Started the whole process off on a good foot with the girls. At least the ice was definitely broken. Then I leaked all over their machine, so it was more eventful than I had hoped.
Pity they didn't get it all, but I've worked harder for less.
